Aggressive Attorneys for Nursing Home Staff Failure Victims

When nursing homes make mistakes that harm their residents, they deserve to be held financially responsible.

Since 1994, the attorneys at Malman Law have been helping nursing facility residents and their families fight for just compensation for nursing home staff administration failures. If you or a loved one has suffered serious physical, emotional, or psychological injuries as a result of negligent nursing home care in the Chicagoland area, we want to help you stand up for your rights and fight for the compensation you deserve.

Common Examples of Nursing Home Staff Administration Failures

Many nursing facility residents rely on their caretakers to provide for their most basic needs, including food and medication. Among nursing homes’ many duties to their residents, these are perhaps both the most fundamental and the most important.

Unfortunately, whether due to negligence or intentional abuse, many staff members fail to provide adequate nutrition and properly administer residents’ medications. When this happens, victims can seek financial compensation for their injuries and losses.

Staff Administration Failure: Inadequate Nutrition and Hydration

With studies showing that as many as 85 percent of all residents may suffer from either malnutrition or dehydration, it is clear that many nursing facility staff members are not doing their jobs. For older adults, these conditions can be extremely dangerous, often putting them at increased risk for conditions such as bedsores and infectious diseases. Malnutrition and dehydration can also cause:

For elderly nursing home residents, these conditions can lead to further complications as well. In some cases, they can ultimately be fatal.

As a result, staff should be adequately trained to provide proper nutrition and hydration, and administrators should be ensuring that their homes’ residents are not becoming malnourished or dehydrated. Simply put, no one should suffer from malnutrition or dehydration while living in a nursing home, and those who do should seek prompt medical attention and hire a lawyer to fight for just compensation.

Staff Administration Failure: Medication Errors

Medication errors can lead to severe – and potentially fatal – complications as well. Here, too, staff members need to be adequately trained and fully qualified to administer patients’ medications. Nurses and other staff members who administer medications should:

Alarmingly, many nursing home staff members are either unable or unwilling to properly administer residents’ medications. Common medication errors include:

Accidental and intentional medication errors can require immediate medical attention, but when staff member make these mistakes, they are often hesitant to report them out of fear of the consequences. Not only can this result in a potentially fatal delay in medical attention after an error, but it can also make finding evidence more difficult. However, at Malman Law, our attorneys and on-staff Registered Nurse are skilled at identifying medication errors and helping victims successfully pursue money damages for their losses.

Other Forms of Nursing Home Negligence and Abuse

Along with nutritional and medication errors, nursing home staff members regularly commit numerous other forms of negligence and abuse as well. Regardless of what happened, if a staff or administration failure has led to you or your loved one suffering serious injuries, at Malman Law we want to help you fight for maximum compensation.
